Cons: lie, don't pay you, don't pay you what you are worth
Title says it all. Seems to be the new thing with agencies that staff NYC hospitals. Don't work for them if you are going to do a Travel Assignment. You will be left stranded. They claim not to give you a contract till after you finish orientation. Then, if you do get it they decide to change it around. They say get paid on Wednesday and then no Friday.
If – more... you live in the city and want gone paid half your rate three weeks later. Well be like the rest of he nurses here and put up with it. I am not! Hospitals are using you and you are falling for it. – less

Staff relief LPN (Current Employee), Albany, NY – May 30, 2014
Pros: higher pay than in-house staff / flexible hours
Cons: no paid sick or personal time benifits
Flexibility for working mothers includes choice in shifts and days, and a variety of work opportunities in facilities, home care and office. Along with ongoing teaching and updates monthly on current or ongoing changes and requirements of the nursing profession. The staffing personal works very hard to accommodate the nurses needs. Management is excellent – more... in support of the staff. MSN also offers travel opportunities for those younger nurses interested in travel. – less
Coming from retail banking and into the field of payroll was a great opportunity. I learned a new skill set and was able to perform my job duties with little to no support from management. It was very challenging and stressful but I had an awesome team that made things worth the while.
